Inspiration comes by boat

The museum has an active education service providing a wide range of workshops and activities for children, and activities for our family visitors. We don't just teach history but make use of the museum's exhibitions and resources to teach science, maths, English, geography and other subjects. Often a visit to the museum facilitates cross-curricular learning.

School groups often enjoy a boat trip on the canal as part of their experience, travelling in small groups, since the community boatsd used are limited to 12 passengers. Whilst part of the class is boating, others are building bridges or tunnels, learning to be engineers, or maybe carrying out science experiments connected with water and boats, or learning about the Victorians.

Education afloat - but also in the museum
